I ask because I'm curious about the maturity/stability of this feature. I also find it useful to apply a degree of caution to features that are coming from WHATWG if there is no counter-commitment to move those features forward in the official W3C REC track.

<template> has a w3c spec proposal that has been discussed extensively in Web Apps WG. If there are explicit statements of support from Mozilla and.or Microsoft it might be good to cite those. I have sort of followed the discussions but can't speak to the maturity level here.
